The Pretenders

Did you know that one of the most authentic relationships of my life is with you? I sit here every week writing exactly what I want to say.  There are no pretenses.  No adjusting my words.  I just tell you things as they are.  As the years have gone by, I understood the importance of this letter in my own life.  It is the one…

Short and Sweet

This is a first.  But I have been flying, traveling, experiencing, living so much that this letter did not get to be written today.  Instead, I am sending you a short note to tell you to drop anything that is not important and go do something fun.  I don’t care what it is.  But don’t tell yourself you don’t have time to see a friend,…

The Partial Truth of Virtual Relationships

Every friend and every relative, lives a whole other life inside our minds.  There, they occupy worlds that have nothing to do with reality.  These worlds are not play pretend, or unreal.  They just appear more real to us.

The Loss of Living A Singular Life

Where should I start from?  Where does the beginning sit in a new story?  Is the beginning at the start of the new experience, or at the end of it.  I have been away inside new adventures for the last few weeks.  I swam in turquoise waters in Greece.  I witnessed a rocket blasting off to space at Cape Canaveral with a friend inside of…
